T&I is replacing Dropbox with Google Drive, as Davidson’s primary cloud storage and file sharing solution. We have already begun to migrate our early adopters’ group. The second group and final phase is scheduled to begin in July, 2021. We will continue to provide updates as the project moves forward. Check out our Dropbox to Google Drive Migration Project article for the most up-to-date information.
This article will walk you through the process of transitioning college data to your department, as well as transferring any personal data you would like to retain to a personal account, prior to your last day. We will work with you to ensure a smooth transition as you leave Davidson. We are committed to your continued success and stand ready to support you on this journey.
Your email account will be deactivated at the close of business 90 days after your final day of employment and subsequently deleted 360 days after your final day of employment. Access to Davidson College services will cease when your email account is deactivated. This includes access to Outlook, Shared Mailboxes, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Moodle, Qualtrics, and any other services the college provides that you currently access using your Davidson College email and network password.

- Transfer ownership of college data that your department will need to retain to a designated faculty member. (i.e. Qualtrics surveys, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive data)
- Transfer Personal Data
- Outlook Auto Reply
- Create an auto-reply in Outlook detailing your employment status, last day of employment, personal email address, and any other pertinent information you would like to share.
